Hello and welcome to Elm class.

In our class Mrs White, Miss Edge (Associate Teacher) and Mrs Watson will be teaching us. Mr Clayton will be working with us every Friday.


Together we will be further developing the skills of:

Exploration, Investigation,
Making connections, Finding answers & Independence

while ensuring that we work as a TEAM in achieving our aims.


Feet on the ground

We continue our exciting STEAM work this term by planting our feet on the ground. Our focus will be on rainforests and we will explore where the world's rainforests can be found and how they are a habitat to many animals and birds. We will then move on to consider the issue of deforestation and the impact this has on our climate and animals before looking in more detail at how palm oil production affects orangutans.

Swimming will begin this term - starting on Friday 26th April. We will be leaving straight after registration and before 9am so please ensure your child is ready to enter school when the doors open at 8.40am. Thank You!

We will also be going on our residential to Plas Nantglyn from 15 - 17th May. Mrs White will be running an information session after school on Wednesday 17th April to go through the itinerary, provide a kit list and to answer any questions.
